Imagine a chocolate chip cookie… That always melts in your mouth, even after it has cooled. Imagine chocolate that was always soft and gooey, with caramel undertones and smooth texture, baked into a soft, homemade cookie.
Sounds pretty good, yes? Well as of today, imagine no more! Apparently, such a thing is possible.
I think most of us have searched long and hard for that perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. Some of us have found it, and others are still on the lookout. I was still kind of in search mode, until today… When an experiment turned out to be the best cookie I’ve ever made. Care for the recipe?
Well, as most of you probably already know, my family owns a chocolate company, specializing in homemade fudge and other chocolates. Unfortunately, our Website is a little out of date, so I’m not sure how much we have available for ordering on there… But as our regular customers already know, an outdated website is no insurmountable obstacle. You can always Email Me to ask that your order be put through. 😛 Hehe, I know; not ideal. But it is what it is! And I’m happy to do that for you.
Anyway, enough of that rambling… What does this recipe have to do with our chocolate company? Well, I pretty much designed this cookie to feature little chunks of our smooth, homemade fudge instead of chocolate chips. Dun-na! Best idea ever!
I actually made cookies twice for this post; first with chocolate chips (as you will see in the baking process pictures), and next with fudge, oats, and flax. The second version was FAR superior, so I’m going to post that recipe here… Though, photographs from both endeavors will be posted below.
Here’s the recipe:
Chocolate Fudge Cookies with Oats and Flax Seed
1 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 large eggs
3 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 c. rolled oats
1/4 c. freshly ground flax seed
2 4-oz. pieces Sweet Somethings gourmet Classic Chocolate Fudge, cut into small cubes
Tip: Sweet Somethings has a TON of flavors to choose from. Imagine this with chocolate peanut butter fudge??! Oo, I get giddy just thinking about it. 🙂 Or mint, or coconut, or… Wow, just about anything. The possibilities are endless!
To start off, you’re going to need to cream the butter and sugars together. Then, stir in the vanilla, and beat in the eggs.
From there, add your oats, flax, and Fudge pieces.
Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt over top; mix to combine, kneading the flour in with your hands until well combined.
Place walnut sized chunks of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets, and bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until just golden brown around the edges and on the rough tips of the cookie shape.
Cool on wire racks… If they make it that long. These are so good served warm, with a glass of milk.
So, so, so so so so good. Wowie.
That’s it for this week! Thanks for stopping in. Make sure to let me know how they turn out, should you decide to make ’em.
